QOTD: Friday

Did you neglect your teeth while you were pregnant, as in no trips to the dentist??!! No shame lol...

I had a cleaning in February, right before I got pregnant, so I'm good with that until next month lol. I had a crown and a filling back in October, but I wouldn't let them do any x-rays.

I go every 6 months.....I'm good about that probably b/c my family doesn't have great teeth so I try to stay very on top of mine!

I'm with you Hilary. I haven't been to the dentist in forever. I am petrified to go. Sounds really silly, but I can't help it. Sad

The dentist is the worse of the doctors IMO. I'd rather see the gyno any day.....lol

I haven't been in 4 years... Horrible right? I don't even have dentist anxiety. I hate leaving my kids with baby sitters. Prior to kids I was in the middle of my surgical residency. I am sooo overly dedicated to work that taking a morning or afternoon off for a dentist appointment seemed impossible. I have this fear of being seen as lazy, so I never ever took any time off. I never missed a class during college either. I'm ridiculas!

I went in March while preggo and missed my 6-month check up after that. I will go here in the next few weeks. My dentist office is in my work office building so it was easy to go.
